Over Five Million White House E-mails Missing

An anonymous reader writes "CREW released: WITHOUT A TRACE: THE MISSING WHITE HOUSE EMAILS AND THE VIOLATIONS OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RECORDS ACT.

The report says, "Executive Office of the President (EOP) has lost over five million emails generated between March 2003 and October 2005. The White House counsels office was advised of these problems in 2005 and CREW has been told that the White House was given a plan of action to recover these emails, but to date nothing has been done to rectify this significant loss of records."

CREW also released: FACT SHEET: THE FACTS BEHIND THE WHITE HOUSE EMAIL SCANDALS

Violations of the Presidential Records Act or the Hatch Act is not acceptable whether the President is a Democrat, Independent, or Republican. Plus, if the destruction of government property is a crime, and the e-mails are government property — does that make deleting e-mails related to EOP activities a crime?

About CREW: Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington uses high-impact legal actions to target government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests."
